push. to that end, a pew research poll, very, have interesting that says nationally the obama campaign touched 14% of the electorate -- excuse me. 11% of the electorate with either door knocks or phone calls. mr. romney has gotten to 10%. very, very close. battleground, numbers are reversed. romney reached 14% of the likely voters in battleground states casting a ballot on tuesday. obama only got to 13%. they're even in the polls. aapparently they're even even in get out the vote effort. they're down to wire. no indication it will change in five days. >> dana: carl, thank you. we'll go to ed henry, with president obama in las vegas. ed, we have a new nickname for you coined by greg gutfeld. we thought you desevened one. election ed. take it away. >> reporter: i like it. that's great. just like campaign carl. bottom line, they are promising a new message for the president today. it will be more positive, less of the negative tone, ripping to mitt romney. this is his final case to what he did in wisconsin today, talking about what he would do in a second term. laying out that he wants to
. >> a new marquette university law school poll shows president obama has opened up an eight-point lead in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin. 51-43. a new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs news swing state poll shows president obama leading in ohio with likely voters 50 to 45. a tighter race in virginia. president obama at 49, mitt romney at 47, which is a statistical tie within the poll's 3% margin of error. and in florida that poll has president obama at 48 and mitt romney at 47. another statistical tie. tonight nate silver of the "new york times'" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6th president obama will win 300 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 238 and president obama's chance of re-election ticked up tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he
at the results from early voting and they favor president obama, because those polls have -- >> no, they don't. this is an important point. if you look at ohio, for example, 57% of the absentee ballot requests come from democrats who voted in none, one or two of the last three election and 72% of the republican absentee ballot application come from people who didn't vote -- voted in none, one or two of the last election and that is to say the democrats are cannibalizing the election day turnout and the republicans are getting the new votes out. >> i'm saying the results are, in both camp, obama is beating romney. >> chris: time out. two questions, karl and one, i want to talk about the disparity between the national polls which are leaning romney and the state polls that are leading obama and is it possible we're ready for another 2000, you could have romney win the popular vote in the case and, obama win the electoral vote. >> we could. and i think it is a small chance, because i think, brit is right when you have -- if the margin is as big nationally as it appears in these polls, then you
in the polls and he's rising. in ohio, you've got president obama, he's been leading all along, and as you can see in the latest poll, averaged from real clear politics, he still is. this is why mitt romney is desperately campaigning in pennsylvania. it is a hail mary pass because he knows he's probably going to lose ohio. in wisconsin, president obama maintains a comfortable five-point lead. president obama is also maintaining his lead in nevada. in iowa, president obama is still ahead. the national average is closer, but president obama has been on the rise there as well. so early voting has been going on for weeks now. in some states, and there are some interesting numbers on party breakdown of early voters so far. now, most early voters have been identified as democrats in ohio, nevada, iowa, florida, and north carolina according to the associated press. republicans have the edge in colorado. let's turn to bob shrum, professor of public policy at nyu and contributor to the daily beast. great to have you with us tonight. let's leave the names out of it for a moment. obama and romney. let's
's a big reason why barack obama's maintaining this five-point lead. look at the same quinnipiac poll, these internals are brutal for mitt romney. any way you slice it. unless you believe that quinnipiac, one of the most accurate polling that's out there is cooking the books. and if you do, change channels because you're listening to the wrong channel. >> yes. there's that. >> so there's the internals of this poll show that 52% of the people in ohio think the economy is getting better. 47% think the economy is staying the same or getting worse. and when asked who cares more about people like them, president obama leads mitt romney by almost 18 points. john heilemann, if it's ohio, ohio, ohio and the president's maintaining a five-point lead and he's ahead 2-1 in early voting in ohio based on this poll, if you assume that the people at quinnipiac are not in the tank for barack obama and are not sniffing glue and none of us at this table believe that because, again, four years ago and two years ago, quinnipiac was really one of the most accurate polls. >> yeah. >> then this is a firewal
is the national picture. and it couldn't be closer. our poll shows 47% each. president obama will soon be on his way to mentor ohio to campaign in the cleveland suburb, but before we take you there, listen to the president slam mitt romney over an ad his campaign is running in ohio. >> look, i understand governor romney has had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry. and it's hard to run away from a position when you're on videotape saying let detroit go bankrupt. but you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president's all about. >> the president was responding to this romney ad that implies the auto bailout plan failed and chrysler will move jobs to china, a claim that chrysler has denied. romney spoke last hour in new hampshire, sharpening his attack on obama, and he's all but declared victory. he even called the event a victory rally. >> when i'm president, it's going to be very clear that we finally
. first a new "washington post"/abc poll shows mitt romney and president obama with a tie. a new "new york times"/cbs poll has the president up one, 48-47. and a new npr poll has romney up one, 48/47 but the npr poll also finds that president obama has a four-point lead in the battleground states, 50-46. we'll be right back. this is hayden. he's five years old. that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of cuts to their schools. prop thirty-eight. thirty-eight raises billions in new revenue - bypasses sacramento and sends every k through 12 dollar straight to our local schools... every school. for them. for all of us. vote yes on thirty-eight. joe," and i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was, of course, david axelrod, famous for his mustache. he's with the obama campaign, sounding very bullish i should say on their chances, obama's chance of carrying michigan, minnesota, a
obama is surging. in 22 new polls of battleground states, the president leads in 19 of them. the obama campaign is taking nothing for granted, however. and joe biden put the campaign into perspective. >> i want to remind you, this is the end of daylight savings time tonight. it's mitt romney's favorite time of the year because he gets to turn the clock back. he wants to turn that clock back so desperately. this time he can really do it tonight, it happens. >> in between all this hectic campaigning, president obama visited fema for an update on storm relief. president obama's best new buddy, chris advertise tea of new jersey extended early voting in the state of new jersey today. from the romney campaign, another sign of desperation. here's governor romney in dubuque, iowa today. >> yesterday the president said something you may have already heard that i found troubling, spoke to an audience and said voting is the best revenge. he's asking his supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for love of country. >> here's exactly what president obama said in springfield ohio. >> d
drive them to the polls on election day? even among the fervent obama supporters at this rally, this is a common theme. >> were you more excited four years ago or more excited today? >> i have to say honestly, i was more excited four years ago. >> reporter: meanwhile, fervent supporters at the romney rally often have their own nuanced motivations. are you more emotional about wanting romney to win or wanting obama to lose? >> wanting obama to lose, yes. most definitely. >> reporter: that motivates you? >> yeah. he let the whole country down. >> reporter: candidates appreciate any kind of support. but the more unconditional and enthusiastic that support is, the more likely that voter will go to the polls. and voter turnout on november 6th will be critical. romney strategists have been concerned that the perceived lack of their candidate's competitiveness could ultimately lead to less enthusiasm and therefore, a lower turnout. so the message being emphasized to the gop base is that romney can win. than makes the message from obama strategists all the more interesting. in order to
important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the
poll shows that 59% of obama voters and 58% of romney voters are very enthusiastic. but the abc news/"washington post" poll indicates obama's enthusiasm numbers were higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the
. it is terrible for romney. maybe the polls are wrong, but if you're looking at the polls right now, obama has got it. >> did romney have momentum or was that just republican spin? >> he did have momentum after the first debate -- >> we have had a three since then -- >> what obama was never able to recapture the lead. >> i cannot say with certainty that there was momentum, no momentum. i cannot tell. you look at the polls hour after hour and you get a sense that this thing is very tight, even when you go to some of the battle ground states. >> yes, the first debate made an enormous difference in the campaign. it allowed mitt romney to reintroduce himself with no opposition on the part of the president as the moderate massachusetts reasonable mitt. gone was the saber-rattling mitt, keep out the foreigners mitt, round up the suspects mitt and send them to practice -- [laughter] he became reasonable, intelligent, poised, forget the cayman islands and the swiss bank accounts. frank bruni of "the new york times" made a telling point -- the first debate was important because it may president obama in th
days before most americans go to the polls. barack obama has served as an example in his campaign's effort to get out the vote. the president stopped at a polling station in his home in chicago. campaign strategists for barack obama and mitt romney say early voting could be' decisive factor in the election. obama became the first president to vote early. he urged his supporters to exercise their rights before election day november 6th. obama made the same pitch in the 2008 election. votes cast early accounted for 30% of the total. >> all across the country we're seeing a lot of early voting. it means you don't have to figure out whether you need to take time off work and figure out how to pick up the kids. >> experts say the share of early votes this time could reach 35%. the figure could exceed 60% in swing states such as colorado and florida. obama visited six battleground states during a swing to win over undecided voter. he slept on air force one to save time. the president spoke before an audience of 15,000 people in the state of virginia. he told them that a republican polic
in this election. we'll get a no poll, 46-48 president obama in the lead. that is one of the smaller leads, but the overall average obama at 48.9% and romney at 46.6%. even there about a 3 point lead, two to 3 point lead in ohio, so that's pretty good. what's happening in ohio? obviously romney's trying to undo that with an onslaught of ads. >> here in ohio, president obama's failed economic and trade policies with china destroyed thousands of jobs. >> i am here in ohio supporting obama for his reelection. >> the question ohio families are asking is who can bring back the jobs. >> in 2008, millions of ohioans voted before election day. i need your help to keep moving forward. >> cenk: earlier today i talked to dennis kucinich, congressman from ohio and asked him about the incredible spending, $18.5 million by romney campaign and 11.4 by the obama campaign. i asked him what that says about our political system. >> well, the fact that in this campaign over $4 billion may be spent in pursuit of elections that's a major problem for urodeles, because essentially votes are being bought by those
there. >> well, the reason for that, tamron, is the internal polls for the obama campaign and romney campaign are very different. the obama campaign thinks it's up in most of the swing states, but the romney polls show a different story. the public polls show that president obama sleis leading m romney by a decent-sized margin in pennsylvania. >> thank you very much, chris and erin. i know it's a tough conversation. your attention is focused on all the people greatly affected by the storm and also on politics. it's important. search and rescue operations are in progress in atlantic city, new jersey with new video coming in plus the floodwaters still inundating atlantic city. dozens were trapped by floodwaters in their homes and emergency shelters after in some cases ignoring mandatory evacuation orders to move inland. in the meantime the city's mayor fought back against criticism about governor christie he allowed people to shelter in the city. the atlantic city mayor joins us by phone. thank you for your time. >> you're welcome. good afternoon. >> before i get into this, give me an

is in a dead heat. polls give obama a slight edge. some of the other states are close. nobody knows what will happen. what we do know is that romney had a little bit of momentum. he was closing gaps, then everything stopped and the election was put on hold. president obama, you can feel the momentum on his side right now. we will have to see how the election plays out. sandy, beyond being a natural disaster, will always be part of the american electoral history. >> sandy has blunted some of the more bitter partisanship. now. we have six days left until the elections. will we hear a different town when the present its back on the campaign trail? >> slightly different. the president will want to stay optimistic, not suddenly descend into taken some cheap shots or one liners. he is now playing commander in chief of an ongoing crisis. remember, this is not about a day when a storm hits. this will go on for weeks and months. i think you will have an optimistic tone for the president. mitt romney will be going after obama more through his sarah gets. he will have to discuss why there are bette

. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the governors and the impacted states. and again the president trying to stay on top of this situation, balance the storm and response to the storm with his campaign. and the message from the president to his top

poll has president obama leading mitt romney by four points, 50% to 46%. a new england college poll of new hampshire likely voters has president obama leading mitt romney by three points, 49 to 46. tonight, nate silver of the new york times blog forecasts that on november 6th, president obama has a 74% chance of winning re-election and over 13 point increase in the last two weeks. nate silver projects president obama will win 295 electoral votes and mitt romney will win 243. so krystal ball we are 12 days away from the ugliest creature that mitt romney has dragged into the presidential campaign, john sununu. he was driven out of washington, in scandal when he was the white house chief of staff for the first president bush. the man was driven out in scandal and it took mitt romney to drag him back in front of television cameras. >> it's been such a bizarre choice. he is the person he put forward the most. he's their lead surrogate and it's such a strange choice for his campaign and this is not the first time that he's stepped in it. he's the one who had to apologize for saying the pr
, the ohio public polls show that, yes, president obama is leading. he lost a little bit of ground, but he's made that back up again. one thing i would point out, chris, is that the obama campaign is seeing very different internal polling than the republicomney campaign is s is. republicans told me earlier this week that last week, their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting, just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollst
